It's been a while since I have been able to post, but I wanted to share these.
This group of knitted and crocheted food are part of a swap from swap-bot.com - Knit & Crochet Tasty Goodies. The recipient was also the co-ordinator and she said she was a fan of Harry Potter and loved miniature things. The candy cane is about 2 1/2" long to give you a bit of scale. I forgot to take a picture next to a coin.
Here is the text of the letter that I sent along with the "goodies".
Congratulations on being the recipient of the new Weasley Wizarding Wheezes Holiday sampler. This assortment of new W3 delights has been sent to you as a gift. Below, you will find a description of the new tasty treats and the resulting consequence of said morsels.
Merry Mint Creams : The eater frequently Ho Ho Hos for a period of 3 hours.
Red Reindeer Roll: The nose of the eater becomes a large round ball and glows with an inner red light for a period of 2 hours.
Plum Party Pudding: The eater becomes the life of the party, with random occurrences of the following: whistles of steam erupting from his/her ears, glowing eyes, uncontrollable urges to dance an Irish Jig, and produce mistletoe in order to kiss strangers. The effect lasts approximately 3 1/3 hours.
Frosty Candy Twist: The eater gains the power to chill glasses of pumpkin juice and butterbeer for a period of 1 hour.
Please tell all of your friends about this great new holiday gift. We are currently accepting pre-orders now.
Yours in jest,
Weasley Wizards Wheezes
